"Roy's impact has been indelible... like finding a secret key to unlocking truth and possibility."―k.d. lang
"Roy Orbison remains a compelling figure in the long line of sounds from Texas. Roy dreamed as big as the Lone Star State and sang even bigger. And this book reminds us of the near incalculable impact he continues to have on music to the present day."―Billy F Gibbons, guitarist and lead vocalist, ZZ TOP
"I met Roy in 1980. He opened for us [Eagles] in San Francisco. We should have opened for him. This is a great book by his sons -- a MUST read."―Joe Walsh, guitarist and vocalist, the EAGLES
"From his early days through the Sun and Monument Records years, the '70s revival, Wilburys, et al, [THE AUTHORIZED ROY ORBISON] offers plenty of good old story-telling in a breezy, readable tone that'll make you like the man even more than you already do."―Mojo Magazine
"THE AUTHORIZED ROY ORBISON not only remembers the legendary American singer-songwriter, but offers a truly unique look-behind-the-scenes at a talented, humble man who became a voice for the ages. Roy Orbison had songs that charted in five consecutive decades, and his accolades continue after his death. This book, co-authored by Roy Orbison, Jr., Wesley Orbison and Alex Orbison with Jeff Slate, chronicles the making of Roy Orbison - his personal life and his celebrity."―Tennessean
